Former Vice President Mike Pence balked at the idea of a potential indictment of Donald Trump, categorizing any possible prosecutorial actions as "politically charged" and "not what the American people want to see."

Speaking with ABC's Jon Karl during a taped interview Saturday, Pence defended any peaceful protests that may break out at Trump's behest, after the former president called for his supporters to "take our nation back," while still condemning the egregious violence that the country witnessed at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.
